If God so clothes the grass in the field which blooms today and is to be burned tomorrow in an oven,
how much more will He clothe you?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow, they do not harvest and do not store food in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than birds?
This is why I tell you not to be worried about food and drink for yourself, or about clothes for your body. Is not life more important than food and is not the body more important than clothes? Can any of you add a day to your life by worrying about it? The Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. Set your heart first on the Kingdom and justice of God and all these things will be given to you.”
The above quotations have been taken from Matthew 6:24-31, (my jumbled version). I just thought of posting that which was directly about the lilies and sparrows, but the entire passage is too pretty to be missed. Besides, looking back now, I think it is so apropos for Father’s Day. The Father in heaven is the father’s Father.
To my fathers, my Tatay and my in-law – who in their own ways mirror the Father to me, to my husband (a most wonderful father) and to all of you fathers by nature or by heart, a blessed and Happy Father’s Day. God bless and help you in your difficult task. 🙂
A blessed Sunday to all.
